Run and Eat

So I did manage to go for a run. A slow 6km around my neighborhood. It felt really good. I felt pretty strong throughout and squeaked in a short sprint near the end. It was raining a bit so I rocked my new Nike Dri-Fit hat. Love it!

Had a totally random but very tasty lunch afterwards:

It was some sort of enchilada/burrito concoction.

Black beans, corn, steamed broccoli (that’s the random part but it needed using up), and avocado rolled up in a whole wheat tortilla with salsa and grated cheddar on top. Popped into the microwave for a couple minutes, and lunch was served. And it was tasty! The broccoli worked surprisingly well.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Motivation via Blogging?

Maybe writing about my lack of motivation is motivation enough to get me moving. After I posted this morning about my lack of exercise lately, I got my butt in gear and went and Shredded (Jillian Michaels’ “30 Day Shred”). Felt great! It was also encouraging that it didn’t feel overly difficult considering I hadn’t done that particular workout in over a month.

Tonight we had Teriyaki Wild Sockeye Salmon again. (Recipe here.)

We served it on a bed of lightly sauteed bean sprouts, with sides of steamed broccoli and brown rice. It was yummy. 🙂

Then it was time for another epic battle of Big 2!

With lots of fruit snacks:

I think I was distracting Joe with all my picture-taking:

In one round I found this spectacular beauty in my hand:

Yes, that’s a straight flush! Wahoo!

Sadly, that was the only shining moment in a night of spectacularly bad hands for me. Len was the big winner! 🙂

Well, I’m gonna state here and now that I will be going for a run tomorrow. There, I’ve said it, it’s out there, I’m gonna have to make it happen. Maybe I’ve just found a new method of motivation for myself! Goodnight!
